Christina Aguilera + Bad Bunny Honored At GLAAD Awards

Superstars Christina Aguilera and Bad Bunny will be honored at the 2023 GLAAD Media Awards.

In recognition of her “decades-long allyship,” on Wednesday (2.08), officials from the LGBTQ advocacy group confirmed that the bi-lingual chanteuse hitmaker will receive the Advocate for Change Award.

In a statement about the award, GLAAD president and chief executive, Sarah Kate Ellis said “Christina Aguilera is a beloved icon who has inspired and shared messages of love for the LGBTQ community since the start of her music career.” “From using her voice to speak out against anti-LGBTQ legislation to creating songs and music videos that showcase LGBTQ love, Christina loudly and proudly raises the bar for what it means to be a LGBTQ ally today.” 

Previous honorees in this category include Beyoncé and Jay-Z, Jennifer Lopez, Britney Spears, Kerry Washington, Cher, Janet Jackson, and Elizabeth Taylor. 

During the same ceremony, Bad Bunny will be presented with GLAAD’s Vanguard Award for championing queer visibility in Latinx culture. 

“Bad Bunny uses his role as one of the world’s most popular music artists to boldly shine a light on LGBTQ people and issues, including transgender equality and ending violence against trans women of color,” stated Ellis. “By consistently advocating for our community, elevating our stories, and demanding action from anti-LGBTQ leaders, Bad Bunny redefines the positive influence Latin music artists can have within the LGBTQ community, and has set an example for all artists.”

The 2023 GLAAD Media Awards at the Beverly Hilton in Los Angeles on March 30 will also recognize Jeremy Pope who will be honored with the Stephen F. Kolzak Award for breaking barriers across multiple industries as an out-LGBTQ media professional.
